When Hrithik Roshan had dropped in to meet Dutt at his home immediately after his sentence was announced, he bumped into many actors there. Ajay Devgn and Mahesh Bhatt who were also present, were garnering support for Dutt. They were urging Sanju’s pals to speak up for him. When Bhatt asked Hrithik if he would show his support for his Agneepath co-star Sanju, in front of the TV crews, Duggu immediately said yes. Ajay, who was scheduled to talk to the channels the following day told him that he would call him to inform him of the venue and the timing. But the next day Hrithik remained unavailable to give bytes to the channels. Says an insider, “The venue was fixed at Devgn’s office (a few minutes away from Hrithik’s Juhu home). but there was no response from the Krrrish 3 actor. After many calls, Ajay received a message from one of Hrithik’s staffer that the actor was unable to attend as he had to attend to some other prior commitment!” Perhaps the actor who is known for approaching things in a very correct manner, didn’t want to make a statement on a judgement passed by the honourable court. But Dutt’s friends and family took notice of this ‘rebuff’.

Presenting the first Official song ‘Sawaar Loon’ from the upcoming romantic movie Lootera.
Sawar Loon — the first song of Lootera in the saccharine sweet voice of the Indian Idol fame Monali Thakur, picturized on the beautiful Sonakshi Sinha and the debonair Ranveer Singh. Unlike the lingering somberness of the trailer, the video of Sawar Loon has a rapturous feel.
The song also gives you the little storyline of how the two lovers meet for the first time, because the video starts with a few dialogues between Ranveer and Sonakshi. Yes, it’s love at first sight for the two, and the song focuses on their growing fondness for each other.
Singer – Monali Thakur
Music Director – Amit Trivedi
Lyricist – Amitabh Bhattacharya
Director Vikramaditya Motwane has re-created the magic of bygone era in the film Lootera, and has cast Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh together for the first time. It’s been quite a while since we saw the film’s trailer; of course, after watching it the first song was eagerly awaited.
Sawar Loon is composed by the talented Amit Trivedi, and the composition is a far cry from the contemporary Bollywood romantic songs as it takes heavily from the melodies of the 60s and evokes a sense of nostalgia.

WILL AURANGZEB SUCCEED DESPITE LACK OF HYPE?
Arjun Kapoor wowed one and all with his terrific performance in Ishaqzaade. The actor is now with back Aurangzeb that’s also produced by Yash Raj Films. Atul Sabharwal, who made the TV show Powder for YRF, makes his debut as a film director with this flick. One of the major strengths of the film is its star cast. Besides Arjun Kapoor, there’s Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Prithviraj, Tanvi Azmi, Amrita Singh, Sikander Kher, Swara Bhaskar and Salma Agha’s daughter Sasheh. The film seems to have a solid storyline, as evident from the promos. Also, the manner in which Aurangzeb is used as a metaphor and not to forget Arjun’s double role act is damn impressive. The problem is that the theatrical trailer didn’t get quite a great response and the same happened with the songs too. In fact, there wasn’t any buzz or excitement for the film at all and it’s only in the last 10-12 days that promotions started in full swing. Sasheh looks hot but whether she has an important part to play in the film is debatable.
The film definitely won’t take a huge opening but has to pick up (if word of mouth is good) considering that it’s getting a wide release. As aforementioned, the premise and setting of the film is damn interesting and if executed well, Aurangzeb can be an exciting ride. Let’s hope for the best!

S Sreesanth arrested by Delhi police on charges of spot-fixing, father accuses Dhoni and Bhajji for framing his son.May 16, 2013 | aman 11
Former India test bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth and two other players have been arrested by Delhi police on suspicion of spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), sports officials said on Thursday.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) immediately suspended Sreesanth and his Rajasthan Royals team mates Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila and promised that stricter punishments would await if they are found guilty.
“The BCCI has zero tolerance to corruption. We will offer all co-operation to the Delhi police and all other authorities in their investigations in this matter,” BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement.
Spot-fixing involves the manipulation of individual incidents within a match which may not affect the outcome of the contest, most famously exposed in a London trial and jailing of three Pakistan cricketers in 2011.
